Three students in Brentwood High School's Broadcasting II class have combined their talents and BE NICE to create a "How To" video. Grant Perdue, Ben van Maarth and Matthew Willoughby worked with Lipscomb Elementary on a video explaining how to BE NICE.
"One day, we saw "PAWS and BE NICE" on the Lipscomb Elementary School sign outside the building and thought it would be good to spread awareness about BE NICE through our video," said Willoughby.
The students spent nearly seven hours coming up with the lyrics to the song.
"It was really fun to sit down and make the song of this video," said van Maarth. "We originally had the chorus in our heads, which was the easy part. Then we sat down and thought about what we wanted to convey in the lyrics and how to incorporate the steps to PAWS and BE NICE."
The students hope that this video will continue to raise awareness of BE NICE, along with encouraging students and community members to PAWS and BE NICE.
"I really hope that the younger students see this from the elementary school and get inspired in situations where they don't know what to do to think back on this video," said Perdue.
PAWS stands for Personal best, Act responsibly, Work and play safely and Show respect.
"BHS students did a great job helping us to convey our message of 'PAWS and BE NICE'," said Lipscomb Elementary School Principal Michelle Contich. "It is our hope that students and families will pay it forward as they seek out kindness and recognize it in our community."
